WIC Helps

If you are pregnant, have just had a baby, or have a child under the age of 5, the Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children (WIC) could be able to help you.

WIC is an income-based program that provides nutrition education and healthy foods to:

  • Pregnant women
  • Women who are breastfeeding their babies
  • Postpartum women (have given birth in the last six months)
  • Infants from newborn to 12 months
  • Children from 1 to 5 years of age

WIC also provides screening and referrals for other health, welfare, and social services.  Participants are asked to provide proof of household income or of Medicaid eligibility in order to qualify for the program.  Click here for WIC income guidelines.

Depending upon age and nutritional risk, mothers and children may receive some of the following foods:

  • Infant formula
  • Infant cereals
  • Infant fruits and vegetables
  • Milk and cheese
  • Iron-rich cereals
  • Rice
  • Whole grain breads
  • Eggs
  • Dried beans or peanut butter
  • Canned fish (salmon, tuna, sardines)
  • Fresh fruits and vegetables

WIC services are available at both Richmond and Berea clinic locations.  Contact us to schedule an appointment or for more information.
